IN an exclusive interview in this week’s issue of Boxing News magazine, we speak to Showtime boss Stephen Espinoza. Here’s an extract:

Anthony Joshua vs Deontay Wilder is the fight everyone wants to see. There have been rumours that Joshua may move to HBO. What can you disclose publicly about that situation?

We’ve made our interest known. We’ve got a track record with them going back six fights. We were supporting “AJ” here in the US market before anyone else was interested in doing so, so we’re proud of the traction we’ve helped him get in the US, and we’re proud of the traction that a fight with Wilder has gotten because Wilder is also a boxer that we’ve heavily invested in.
